Mary Gorrett primary school, pupils spend 2 hours every day fetching water for their school so that they can prepare for them meals because the school can't afford to harvest water and in village there is no pipe water, wells are very far that it requires them to move 10KM for water. According to research, the places from which pupils fetch water from are the same places from which animals drink from. The same water is directly consumed by pupils as drinking water without cooking it
